i had a x1 cobra and it broke after 3/4 gallons conrod snapped in half, but axe rossi replaced my engine no questions asked. i had to send it ot italy, but they gave me their UPS account number. Was unhappy it broke but they took care of it. You must use a slow break in process they hace a lot of pinch to work through, it ran very well fast on the top and with a little clutch tuning i got plenty of bottom.

I have a Cobra with under 2 gallons. New conrod was installed after 1 gallon. I had tuning issues with it so I pulled it and pickled itI stopped racing and haven't used it. I'd like to sell it. Any offers in the lower 48 states? I can get pics. I'll have to dig the box out of my equipment bag but if there is no interest, I'll hold off. thanks
